startitle3Frantic Franko: A Bergzwerg Gone Berserk is a funny albeit twisted little piece about a nasty dwarven warrior (axe and all that) and his quest for revenge. AND about the dwarf’s mysterious bag of junk conversation system..  (more in-depth summary here)

This is also a game that takes its characters’ development very seriously.

By the time it ends… you’ll be permanently perplexed. Download it here or here.

So, while much much work still needs to be done, even on the demo, from this moment on there will be always  some solid virtual entity to refer to. In other words, Frantic Franko now lives! (more…)
